Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

my car started stalling last month & so far I've invested $700 into fixing it & the issue is STILL an issue, the car cuts off at stops, jerks when i step on the brake, the engine light comes on when im going down hill, the heat only works when i have a full tank, the engine roars like a truck... i've been to the mechanic 3 times and have done EVERYTHING he has suggested, complete tune up, oil change, new head gasket, i even went & bought an i'yack (whatever the hell that is) & the car still has the same issue! at this point i dont know what to do except get a new car before this one drains me outta house & home

Lumina 3.1L V6

  • Automatic transmission

Car cuts out, loses power when driving, dies at stops occasionally and restarts, especially after warming up on roadway. I had a new fuel pump, fuel filter, strainer, ignition module, spark plugs and wires, crank sensor, vacuum hoses put on all in the last 1-2 months and the problem is still there. Before that was a replaced battery and alternator about 3 months ago. A fuel injector

cleaning foam has been blown through and I have put fuel injector cleaner and bottles of HEET

in the gas tank myself. The computer (ECU) was hooked up to diagnostics and only indicated a

problem with some map (I have no idea what map is). The problem worsens when the car gets low on fuel, so the mechanic told me to keep at least 1/4- 1/2 tank of gas at all times. The problem worsens after I add more gas to the tank. One day I stopped at FS station to get more gas, and shortly afterwards the car started cutting out when I pushed on the gas and backfired when I pushed the accelerator down too far. The car barely wanted to move . dying on me at diiferent times. It died on me and when I started it, the car wouldn't go and died as soon a I put it in drive. I left it sit overnight, walked home, and came back the next day to start it and it wouln't start. I got a tow truck to take it to the same darn mechanic. He replaced vacuum hoses and got the car running a couple days later.(All of this breaking down was during an ice storm here in IL). I have been driving it, but it still has this same problem of cutting out and stalling, and I am afraid every time I go to put more gas in the car. The mechanic is stumped and in a round about way, said he is tired of messing with this car. This problem is really peeing me off.
